Have you considered maybe giving up something that is unnecessary for gas money? I've daily driven my M3 since 2008 and used to drive it like a b**** never revving past 3k rpm so I could get the best gas mileage. Even after being easy on the gas I averaged only 15-17 MPG. It was really difficult getting rid of the car because I was still paying it off at the time. My wife and I each used to smoke a pack a day and eat out everyday. On average we were spending $300 on cigarettes and $1000-1400 on eating out each month. We both decided to quit smoking and started eating at home and packing our lunches. This alone saved us $1000-$1200 each month which was more than enough for gas.
